The Heart Stitch is fun, and it inspired me to create other kitchen items, along with a few kitchen storage baskets.
I will be releasing the crochet patterns for these items well before Valentine’s day. The heart scrubby has already been released, and it’s a hit.

The photo of the dishcloth below, was made by a friend of mine. She executed a slip stitch around the entire dishcloth. This is what she had to say, about her execution.
“When I was done w hanging loop, I started the slip stitch border. At each of the three corners, I did a chain before I turned the corner, to carry on.”
Thank you Heidi! Your work is beautiful!

Love all your patterns
Thank you so much Kay! <3
I love your scenery! I live in a small town, but I love trees and they are sparse here
Thank you…it is lovely here, but it is so far away from everything. The nearest yarn and craft store is an hour away. Walmart is only 30 minutes away, and they have a good yarn and fabric department, so that helps. Are you in the U.S.?
Ravelry says code has been redeemed and it’s not Midnight yet???
